BuoniStrings Plays Performances to Benefit United Through Reading

Our sibling trio, BuoniStrings, is made up of violinists Rachel (15), Claire (10) and
cellist, Brendan (13). We play various styles of music, including classical, sacred, folk and traditional. We love to play our music together, and over the last few years, we have played at nursing homes, churches, retail stores, private functions and other locations around our community. One of our absolute favorite places is our local library. Last year, we asked if our trio would be able to play there at Christmas time to thank all our friends there and show them how much we appreciate them. The library said yes. This year, we will be playing there again on December 20th, but we wanted to do it as a charity benefit. We talked about some different charities and causes with which we were familiar. Because we are friends with a number of young men and women who have recently joined the armed services, we decided that we wanted to do something for the military because of all the things they do for us. We looked at the USO website and found “United Through Reading”. We think that it the perfect charity to play for at the library.  Since then, we have been able to plan two more performances for “United Through Reading” at Shady Maple Smorgasbord and Shady Maple Farmers Market.
